The ethical aspects of the operation of healthcare organizations (HCOs ) are central to the delivery of health care. Organization Ethics in H ealth Care begins by assesing the shortcomings of clinical ethics, bus iness ethics, and professional ethics as a basis for solving problems that have emerged in healthcare delivery systems since the advent of m anaged care. The text then considers the meaning of the developent of the HCO in our society and what its present status is. It shows that m oral parameters endorsed by society have guided previous shifts in the relationships among important HCO stakeholders, but that these parame ters have been unclear or missing altogether during the past tumultuou s decade. Finally, the authors describe the key elements for the succe ssful implementation of a fully functioning healthcare organization et hics program and what it can mean to the institution, its associated c linicians and employees, its patients, and its community.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
